Luxury hotels tend to fall into a couple of camps. The first is the old world charm of a stately residence with glamour, size, staff at the ready, and quality everywhere.
The second is more of a bespoke take on luxury. Personalised, semi-isolated, contained, private, yet still oozing quality and service. The Whitepod Eco-Luxury hotel is this type of luxury, set amongst the Swiss Alps in Rhône Valley.
Each pod is raised just enough to take advantage of the spectacular views on offer without impacting the immediate landscape and includes:
- Access to the sauna area
- Daily Tea-time: Pastries and homemade cakes, fresh fruit, selection of teas and coffees
- WiFi at the Pod-house and the Chalet Les Cerniers
There’s also 25 km of hiking trails, private mountain guides and tailor-made activities to enjoy.
But the really fun bit is how each Pod has its own theme.
007 Suite Pod
How many times have we seen 007 in a Bond film escape down a ski slope? The 007 Suite Pod is a perfect homage to such films designed with a very Bond-esque fitout. It comes with a very un-PC “Bond girl” sized king bed but sadly no getaway snowmobiles.
Zen Suite Pod
If you’re like most people and looking to chill and relax there’s always the Zen Suite Pod designed by Montalba Architects. Using Japanese influences throughout it aims to provide a serene atmosphere while providing amenities such as an authentic Japanese Furo” bath with views of the Alps.
There are other themed pods available such as the Family Pod, Deluxe Pod, Swiss Pod, and Forest Pod.
